As Lumina Foundation works to increase the nation’s education attainment rates, we embrace a dual commitment – to quality credentials and to racial equity. In short, we seek to ensure that degrees and other education credentials reflect the learning necessary for workplace success and informed citizenship. At the same time, we work to ensure that our systems of education beyond high school produce fair and just outcomes for people of color.

This document articulates our commitment to quality credentials in detail. A parallel document articulates our commitment to racial equity.
